The main shrine building has two large halls known as the east and west sanctuaries. The east sanctuary is dedicated to Tamayorihime-no-mikoto, the deity of good family lines and child rearing and the mother of the deity enshrined at Kamigamo Shrine. The west sanctuary is dedicated to Kamotaketsunumi-no-mikoto, the guardian deity of good fortune who helped the Emperor Jinmu. The shrine halls are said to be excellent examples of shrine architecture, and they have been designated as national treasures. In addition, the Kotosha affiliated shrine, dedicated to Okuninushi-no-mikoto, the god of national affairs, is also located on the shrine grounds. There are seven names for Okuninushi-no-mikoto, and at Shimogamo Shrine, a separate shrine has been dedicated to each name. Each of these shrines, all specified as important cultural properties, is popular for prayers to the god of the twelve zodiac signs and the god of prosperity in business.
